      I think that it would be a wonderful experiment.  I would hope that you are at least a touch typist.  I did have a course in college where everything was online. We had laptops to connect. I believe the server software was lotus notes.  Anyway besides that I (and my roommate) used the borrowed laptop to type up notes onto the laptop from other classes.  It was helpful as my handwriting too is terrible.  I even once experimented with tape recording classes, but that was a pain to transcribe everything. It was a slow process.  I wasn't a good note taker in general.  I wish I had a class on that Winking smiley emoticon 
      If you use one of the Model 100 Tandy's, is it easy to transfer the text to another computer to print ?  Sometimes paper is a lot easier to read.  Also, is there a way to back up what's in memory on these things ?  I don't know much about them obviously.

      My handwriting is terrible. I can barely read it, so I'm definitely to be using some type of laptop. However, with all the discussion of AP reporters still using Model 100 Tandys after all these year (whether or not factual) got me thinking: Could I survive a semester of college using mostly a vintage laptop?
